Kacie Hultgren, aka “PrettySmallThings” — one of my favorite designers from Thingiverse! — created a great getting started series for desktop 3D printer hobbyists: “Up and Running with 3D Printing” @ Lynda.com:

There’s never been a better time to try 3D printing. This course draws a roadmap for getting started with 3D printing (aka additive manufacturing), from choosing a printer to learning about 3D modeling. After surveying a variety of commercial 3D printing technologies (filament-based, laser sintering, and more), author Kacie Hultgren walks you step-by-step through a variety of 3D design tools, including 3D modeling and 3D scanning. You’ll also learn how to repair designs so they’re ready to print, with netfabb Studio, a 3D printing suite. This is a great course for both 3D printing novices as well as designers with existing modeling skills that want to enter the 3D printing marketplace.

Topics include:

  • What is 3D printing?
  • What can you make with a 3D printer?
  • Understanding the different 3D printing technologies
  • Designing with 3D modeling and scanning
  • Creating watertight 3D designs
  • Repairing a 3D file
  • Exporting your file
